a lot of what happened, including what happened in the election. in the end mitt romney didn't want to pick big fights with barack obama on foreign policy and i think there are lots of people who look at syria and say, "we really should do something about this," and then they say, "but what can we do that will actually improve the situation and not get us inveigled in place and in circumstances that we don't want to be inveigled in?" i do think it's very troubling looking forward that we may be losing the opportunity to have a two state solution between israel and the palestinians. i think time really is running out on that and i think there is a lot of frustration in the administration over what can they actually do? and whether or not we can argue about what they did in the past, you know, i think a lot of people would like to do something but don't see what the promising path is right now. >> and there are lot of troops in afghanistan who perhaps would like to come home and a lot of people here who would like them to come up, but that seems to be somethingfor the ye beyond, 2014.
